[PDF / Epub] ✪ On the Run with Fotikchand ☆ Satyajit Ray – Snackgo.co.uk

On the Run with Fotikchand the story was very good..this is the first book I read of Ray..its really entertaining and full of suspense.. If someone said me, There are some other stories that started as The Bourne Series amnesia perspective and they were written before Bourne came into prominence one day before, I would not have believed them But after reading this book, I can say the Not the best of ray, on the onset it appears to be an adventure visual novel which grabs attention early on but later looses any excitement as plot becomes bare in the middle. Leaves me with questions about why Phatik could not face his father, when he had the urge to chase after Harunda at the end I wonder what people with non Indian background would think of the story.For its short length, the pace is perfect and the characters are revealed effortlessly Very good read. read this as a school kid loved the narration Bought this on an impulse while buying short stories written by Satyajit Ray This one is a nice little story meant for kids. Simply loved it One of my dad s all time faves Extremely engaging read for young kids My kid is a huge fan. Amazing read Classic Novel And Screenplay Life Of A Young Boy, Human Relationship A Classic Film And Contribution To Bengali And Indian Literature
